"poverty"

i was driving home from running errands today and i found myself behind a shiny red SUV with anti-abortion bumper stickers all over the back of it. one of them was a quote from mother theresa saying, "it is poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish." i thought that was kind of funny because it IS poverty. that's kind of the point, isn't it? and yet i'd be willing to bet a few million dollars that the woman driving that car wasn't nearly as concerned with ending poverty as with ending abortion. huh.

i really wanted to rear-end her, but i figure it's probably also poverty to decide that a north shore housewife must be injured so that you may have an enjoyable drive home.

plus, it's not your car so that might complicate matters further.
